PhD Dissertation Template for LaTeX

Like many others, I wrote three papers (on LaTeX) for my dissertation. At the end, I had to combine all three LaTeX files and format them to appease Columbia’s dissertation czars. A few Ph.D. students have asked me for a latex template that combines all three papers, so I might as well share it here. I spent a long time playing around with different formatting and ways to do so, so hopefully this template can help some of you out. It’s not perfect and can be improved on so feel free to do so and let me know what you did. It should conform to Columbia’s dissertation requirements, at the least. Just remember to check up on Columbia’s latest requirements (or whatever school you’re at). Download here: dissertation_latex_template
